Where you'll be

We start the tour in the songbird filled air of rural Algarve, visiting an orange farm growing citrus fruit for the last four generations. We move back to Silves (with your own cars) and stop in three different tabernas and restaurants to taste the most traditional and delicious food while rubbing shoulders with Algarvios. Last stop will be a liquor factory where capable hands transform local oranges and regional fruits into great spirits.
